Collingwood has announced the signatures of Brayden Maynard and Tom Phillips, with the pair signing two-year extensions.

Maynard’s new deal will see him remain at the club until the end of the 2022 campaign, while Phillips was out of contract at season’s end, meaning his new deal takes him until 2021.

“The longer term future of the team sits, in part, with the players we have on our list who are 20-25 years of age, who have established themselves as AFL level players and have their prime years ahead. Brayden and Tom definitely fit into this category,” Collingwood List Manager, Ned Guy, told the club’s website.

“It is clear that they already have important roles to play for us but casting forward we hope that Tom and Brayden, and others of their age and experience, make their mark as leaders and as cornerstone players of the program.”

Maynard has played 88 games for the Pies, while Phillips has played 65. Both players featured in the 2018 grand final.

  1. What is going on with Sam Murray?

    It’s been nearly 12 months since his A sample was tested and returned a positive result.
    Surely his B sample result is known by now and he is either not guilty or on a suspension.
